Changes could be coming to Cardinals’ lines

The Arizona Cardinals emerge from the bye with a five-game losing streak, and some possible changes.

Defensive end Calais Campbell, who has started 30 straight games, was absent from practice with a calf injury.  If Campbell can’t play on Sunday at Atlanta, veteran Vonnie Holliday will likely get the start.

On the offensive line, left tackle D’Anthony Batiste could be out for Sunday, but not because of any injury.  Per the Associated Press, coach Ken Whisenhunt said Wednesday that seventh-round rookie Nate Potter enters the week as the starting left tackle, giving Arizona a pair of rookies on each end of the offensive line.  Fourth-rounder Bobby Massie starts on the right side.

None of this bodes well for the 4-5 Cardinals as they face the 8-1 Falcons.

    Cards have some depth on the D line. The tackle position can’t possibly be any worse than the past 5 games. Potter seemed like he was holding up against Green Bay.

    I am not discouraged by this news. The “new look” O-line from the Packers game looked pretty good — lots of potential.

    And don’t forget, the O-line was doing a pretty good job until one thing happened: Beanie Wells got hurt.

    Wait until Beanie gets back, and gets behind that new O-line. Suddenly, the Cardinals will look like a contender.
